Yawn. More gays who say all they want is tolerance and diversity… who want to “stop the hate”... making utter and obnoxious asses of themselves and attacking Christians.
This is video from November 14, in San Francisco’s Castro district - perhaps the gayest enclave in North America’s gayest city, right after a group of Christians held a peaceful protest on the sidewalk. Watch the video first then read one of the Christian’s descriptions of how she was treated by the gays who objected to her presence.
And I’ll say it one more time (although it certainly won’t be the last): I have yet to read a denunciation of this violence by any of our Worthy Opponents. Susan Russell? Elizabeth Kaeton? Mark Harris? Louie Crew? For that matter, Bishop Andrus? Bishop Bruno? Bishop Beisner? Bishop Mathes? Where are you? Where is your condemnation of the exact kind of violence against peaceful Christians that you condemn against gays? You prattle on about things that might happen to gays, because of what Christians say and write, yet when it actually happens to Christians, and at the hands of gays, you’re strangely silent. Well, not strangely, I guess. That would imply that I expected you to do something else, that I expected you to act consistently, with honor and without hypocrisy.
This is just the latest skirmish in the coming culture war, folks. Mark my words.
Here’s what the person wrote who posted the video:
After just singing and worshiping God for a while, Roger decided that we should all hold hands in a circle and continue singing. So we did.
Someone (Actually a person who came up and hugged and kissed some of us who he knew from the past) convinced some people that we were there to protest against the no on 8 campaign.
Then some guy who was dressed up like one of the sisters (The sisters of perpetual indulgence is a group of men who dress up like nuns and call themselves the spiritual authority of the Castro.) took a curtain-type thing (Which I think they use to curse people) and wrapped it around us.
Then a crowd started gathering. We began to sing “Amazing Grace”, and basically sang that song the whole night. (At some points we also sang “Nothing but the Blood of Jesus” and “Oh the Blood of Jesus”.) At first, they just shouted at us, using crude, rude, and foul language and calling us names like “haters” and “bigots”. Since it was a long night, I can’t even begin to remember all of the things that were shouted and/or chanted at us. Then, they started throwing hot coffee, soda and alcohol on us and spitting (and maybe even peeing) on us. Then, a group of guys surrounded us with whistles, and blasted them inches away from our ears continually. Then, they started getting violent and started shoving us. At one point a man tried to steal one of our Bibles. Chrisdene noticed, so she walked up to him and said “Hey, that’s not yours, can you please give it back?”. He responded by hitting her on the head with the Bible, shoving her to the ground, and kicking her. I called the cops, and when they got there, they pulled her out of the circle and asked her if she wanted to press charges. She said “No, tell him I forgive him.”
Afterwards, she didn’t rejoin us in the circle, but she made friends with one of the people in the crowd, and really connected heart to heart. Roger got death threats. As the leader of our group, people looked him in the eyes and said “I am going to kill you.”, and they were serious. A cop heard one of them, and confronted him. (This part is kinda graphic, so you should skip the paragraph if you don’t want to be offended.) It wasn’t long before the violence turned to perversion. They were touching and grabbing me, and trying to shove things in my butt, and even trying to take off my pants - basically trying to molest me. I used one hand to hold my pants up, while I used the other arm to hold one of the girls. The guys huddled around all the girls, and protected them.
